conversation with democratic senator dick durbin of illinois. i talked to the majority whip just a short time ago. senator durbin, thank you very much for joining us. i think one of the main questions i'm hearing is, what does this proposal mean for people living in this country illegally right now? what would happen to them? >> basically it would give them a chance to go through a criminal background check to make certain that there are no problems in terms of their background, to pay a fine, to pay their taxes, and then they would be here in a probationary status where they could not be deported. they could work. and we watched them as a number of other things evolve and progress under the bill. border security leading to green cards, leading to citizenship. >> woodruff: we hear some advocacy organizations saying, wait a minute. even that level of requirement is going to be a disincentive. they're not going to want to sign up if they have to pay a fine and so forth. >> well, i'll tell you. that's going to be part of it. we believe that these people who have lived here for so many years in f
sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
to announce today that the five of us here today, and eight of us in total, including senators mccain, durbin, graham, menendez, rubio, flake and bennett, have come together on a set of bipartisan principles for comprehensive immigration reform legislation that we hope can pass the senate in overwhelming and bipartisan fashion. we still have a long way to go. but this bipartisan group -- sorry, we still have a long way to go, but this bipartisan blueprint is a major breakthrough. it is our hope that these principles can be turned into legislation by march, and have a markup by chairman leahy's committee with the goal of passage out of the senate by late spring or summer. senator durbin and i spoke to the president yesterday to update him on this group's progress, and he couldn't be more pleased. he strongly supports this effort. the key to our compromise is to recognize that americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration and support legal immigration. to this end, our framework contains four basic pillars. first, we create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants curre

for illegal immigrants already in the country. senators john mccain and dick durbin say it's an issue which both sides are determined to compromise. >> how can we convince the republicans to a path to citizenship? >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows of an illegal status. we cannot forever have children who were born here, who were brought here by their parents when they were small children that live in the shadows as well. so i think the time is right. >> we are trying to work our way through some very difficult issues, but we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law that we can live with. we're putting as a high priority the unification of families, to make sure that families have a chance to come together. >>> the president has just outlined his own
believes will take place. so did senator menendez and senator dick durbin today. >> peter alexander thank you so much from the white house. we will come back to you later in the show. >>> the other big battles between president obama and republicans are mostly budget focused. on march 1 one month from this friday sequester cuts kick in. it is $1.2 trillion. those are cuts to military and discretionary spending. paul ryan says don't expect a last minute deal or any deal at all. >> i think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts we can't lose those. >> joining me now lynn sweet and david who covers the white house for the washington post. good sunday to both of you. let's start with the claim from paul ryan. $1.2 trillion in cuts said to take effect march 1. paul ryan indicating this time there will be no 11th hour deal. >> it is just a bargain position and it is not going to necessarily unfold that way. there are no absolute right now. it is early in yet another chapter of the on going rangles we have been having. so i would put no more into it. it is a
want do move quickly. as i mentioned, senator durbin and i talked to the president and he was delighted we had come to an agreement. we will be working together very closely to try and get something done. obviously, the senate has a chance to create a bipartisan coalition because we need both parties to suck sold. that gives us a unique opportunity but we intend as senator john mccain said, the white house, the senate, and the house of representatives, all trying to work together, it seems to me at least, that senate is the most fortuitous place to move forward. >>shepard: one question so many people have, what is required for this path to citizenship to happen? carl cameron is back with us from capitol hill. karl, what has to happen? >>carl: will sponsors and advocates will talk about being a path to citizenship contingent on, and they will rattle off a list. first is securing the borders. that is contentious. there are some who believe the only way do secure the border is with a fence from the pacific ocean to the gulf coast. maybe say that is unrealistic and it would be porous and pe
hiring illegal immigrants. the bipartisan effort included democrats chuck schumer and dick durbin and republicans john mccain and marco rubio. the new semester begins this morning at montgomery college. some students may not suddenly be able to afford tuition. it's because of the dream act there. undocumented immigrants who are still in high school but want to take courses at the community college have to pay almost triple the rate of their peers. that's because the dream act requires students to graduate from a maryland high school to be eligible for instate teu tigs. they're working to fix the loophole. >>> billions of dollars of aid for hurricane sandy victims. the long awaited disaster aid package. the house approved the package last week. this week marks three months since the superstorm slammed into the east coast. the bill is expected to pass. >>> hillary clinton is beginning her final week as secretary of state. we've learned that friday will be her final day as head of the state department. tomorrow clinton will take part in what's being called a global town-ter view at t
leaders, dick durbin and one of the top republicans in the senate. >> chris, i found it interesting, i don't know what's going to happen with the republican party. we had the winter meetings with the gop and bobby jindal saying the republicans have to stop being the party of stupid. >> that's right. that is what he said. obviously one of the things they point to were a couple of candidates for the senate republicans who talked about rape as legitimate rape. i think the party hasn't dealt with the central issue, and that is while its conservative principles, they still believe and they may be right, it's fundamentally a center right country, i think they get defined by what it's against, gay marriage or taxes on anybody, even people making over a million dollars a year, and they have to find a way, and i think they realize this, but it's hard to do when you're in opposition and there isn't a single leader to express what they're for. and to make a message that is appealing to a lot of people. for instance, on the issue of immigration reform. they got a lot of work to do. i think they unders
durbin from illinois and michael bennett from colorado, on. on the republican side led by john mccain, including they include lindsey graham because john mccain can't do anything without lindsey graham alongside of him. they also include marco rubio from florida and geoff flake, the other senate from arizonaother senate from arizona. democrats insisted any immigration reform bill had to include a path to citizenship. had to do something about these 11 million people estimated, i think it's higher than that, who had been here, came here illegally, have lived here a long time had their families have jobs, have houses have kids in school. some have kids in the military belong to local churches members of the community, had to do something being them and allow -- give them a path to staying here permanently as american citizenship. democrats always insisted on that. and the president has insisted as have democrats, that this all has to be contained in one bill. it can't be little piece meal things. republicans, for their side, still have this broken record
ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his pl

cain, marco rubio, jeff flake, lindsey graham, the democrats, chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael benn bennet, robert menendez. probably the most controversial part will be all of these folks here in this country illegally under this proposal, should it pass, would not be asked to leave the country. they would have a path to citizenship, a path to being legal and that, of course, the devil is going to be in the details on this. but that is going to be the test, whether conservative republicans who have been against this for a long time, whether they can sign on to it. >> we'll get a chance to listen to what the president has to say on this, as i mentioned, tomorrow in las vegas. chuck todd in washington. thank you very much. >> you got it. >>> let's check in with natalie morales with the days top stories. >> good morning, savannah and matt. >>> violence raging on the streets of cairo for the fifth straight day this morning. eamon . >> reporter: clashes taking place between protesters and police, as you mention ed, for the fifth straight day. all weekend long, intense fighting in the city of a
